•A chaplain remains independent of the company he or she visits.
•A chaplain, as a representative of a local faith community, acts as a bridge builder with the work place.
•The Chaplaincy service is open to all without discrimination and is confidential.Confidentiality covers all aspects of a chaplain's work, including individual conversations and information about the company.
